|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Dorion had size against him, but he was a big time scorer when he played at Western Michigan. He was a two-time
Hobey Baker finalist (junior and senior year) and still holds a lot of the Broncos' records to this day.
After his senior year, he joined the Devils for a few games and made a decent impression. He finished that season with
the Maine Mariners for their playoff run.
He largely played with the Mariners and the Utica Devils in all his North American career, and yes, that includes the
trade to the Bruins. (The Mariners were the Bruins' top farm team at that time.)
After the 88-89 season, he decided to give Europe a try. He would play one season in Italy, kicking all kinds of ass with
HC Fassa that year, scoring 69 points in 29 games.
He took the following season off before moving to the British League. In his first season in the league with the
Nottingham Panthers, he was named MVP after scoring 129 points. He would bounce around the league with a lot
of success until 1995, when the team he was on then folded. He chose to retire at that point.
